Bad morning...
Crawl outta bed get to my jeep...go to start it... buzz..try again... buzz.

My sleepy @$$ gets out and walks to work...

So take your bets... battery, alternator, starter, starter solenoid... any other takers?

Yeah on lunch break I've got buddy from work to go see if we can jump it and stick a multimeter on the battery.

Originally got it for my system but... it keeps me informed 24/7, as soon as I turn the key to accessory even.

$20 shipped from ebay, it's wired into my stereo

Since the WK's dont come with them, a voltmeter was my best option.

Re: Bad morning...
check your cables too. I have seen bad cables that look perfectly fine do the same thing. That is more rare than a bad battery.

Re: Bad morning...
check for corrosion on the battery cables too. If theres whitish green stuff growing on them.....that could be it too
